The Strength of Vulnerable Leaders

The Strength of Vulnerable Leaders | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

In business, vulnerability is generally seen as weakness. Recent headlines scream for business to avoid vulnerability or suffer the consequences: “30% of Auto Parts Retailers’ Business Is Vulnerable to Amazon,” “Five Industries Most Vulnerable to Digital Disruption,” “Apple Users Are Also Vulnerable to WannaCry-Type Attacks.” Having a strategy or a model or a position that is susceptible to attack is the last thing investors, executives, and employees want. By the same token, personal vulnerability is considered a liability for leaders. Conventional wisdom holds that it is difficult to lead or negotiate or make demands from a position of perceived weakness.

But it turns out that the popular perception of vulnerability is a myth — one that keeps leaders from being effective. In fact, there are plenty of reasons to believe that vulnerability can be an asset for leaders, as Emma Seppala argued in this 2014 Harvard Business Review article. Why? Vulnerable leaders inspire, are more authentic, and build bonds that lead to increased performance.

What the future of work will mean for jobs, skills, and wages | McKinsey & Company

The technology-driven world in which we live is a world filled with promise but also challenges. Cars that drive themselves, machines that read X-rays, and algorithms that respond to customer-service inquiries are all manifestations of powerful new forms of automation. Yet even as these technologies increase productivity and improve our lives, their use will substitute for some work activities humans currently perform—a development that has sparked much public concern.

Building on our January 2017 report on automation, McKinsey Global Institute’s latest report, Jobs lost, jobs gained: Workforce transitions in a time of automation (PDF–5MB), assesses the number and types of jobs that might be created under different scenarios through 2030 and compares that to the jobs that could be lost to automation.

The results reveal a rich mosaic of potential shifts in occupations in the years ahead, with important implications for workforce skills and wages. Our key finding is that while there may be enough work to maintain full employment to 2030 under most scenarios, the transitions will be very challenging—matching or even exceeding the scale of shifts out of agriculture and manufacturing we have seen in the past.

The case for behavioral strategy 

In this article, we share the results of new research quantifying the financial benefits of processes that “debias” strategic decisions. The size of this prize makes a strong case for practicing behavioral strategy—a style of strategic decision making that incorporates the lessons of psychology. It starts with the recognition that even if we try, like Baron Münchhausen, to escape the swamp of biases by pulling ourselves up by our own hair, we are unlikely to succeed. Instead, we need new norms for activities such as managing meetings (for more on running unbiased meetings, see “Taking the bias out of meetings”), gathering data, discussing analogies, and stimulating debate that together can diminish the impact of cognitive biases on critical decisions. To support those new norms, we also need a simple language for recognizing and discussing biases, one that is grounded in the reality of corporate life, as opposed to the sometimes-arcane language of academia. All this represents a significant commitment and, in some organizations, a profound cultural change.

Five Ways To Activate Leadership Potential In Your People

Five Ways To Activate Leadership Potential In Your People | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

As leaders, most of us would like to imagine that we have all the answers. But we’re constantly faced with new and disruptive challenges that we have no idea how to solve. As we turn to our teams to help us develop innovative solutions, there’s nothing more disappointing than seeing them come back to you with mediocre ideas and lackluster execution.

 

It’s not that your team is wrong. It’s just that they are stuck in the loop of status quo. So, as a leader, you crave new talent with new ideas to drive your team forward. The good news is that the problem may not be that your team doesn’t have the ability to step up to the shifting challenges and expectations of leadership. Instead, you may just need to find a new way to unleash the leadership promise they already have. This means bringing the untapped potential of individuals and teams to the surface, activating it and accelerating development through opportunities and exposure.

 

Here are some of the ways you might be overlooking potential on your team:

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, October 20, 4:06 PM
The short answer is it depends on how we define leading. Understood as emergent, distributed, and collective the answer is yes. More traditional understandings based on hierarchy and position means not as likely.

One that is missing is servant-leadership, which each person is capable of serving and leading. By its nature, teaching is leading even if we do not acknowledge teachers as leaders. Teachers are pedagogues and educate, both of which are etymologically tied to leading.

As I looked into Igor’s face, it was imperative that I accurately interpret his reaction to my words. Emotional intelligence is not taught at the FBI Academy, but it was essential for me to understand the difference between anxiety and sadness when interviewing people like Igor. I needed to know whether I could trust him to help me in my investigation. You may never need to interview an individual whom you suspect of being a foreign spy. It is possible, however, that you will need to impress a new client or calm down an frustrated customer.

3 Things Smart Bosses Do to Effectively Manage Smart People

3 Things Smart Bosses Do to Effectively Manage Smart People | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

If you've been charged with managing a group of really smart and savvy employees, you have your work cut out for you. Smart people obviously know they're smart, which works to their advantage. They have high expectations of not only themselves but also of the people they work with, which ups the game for bosses to manage them well.

 

That's where it gets interesting. "Managing well" is not the same as "leading well." While bosses can "manage" their smart workers to accomplish tasks, it takes much more to motivate, inspire, and engage your smartest workers (also called "knowledge workers"). 

 

Here are three proven leadership strategies that will positively impact your smartest people to conquer mountains for you.

Secrets Of The Most Resilient People

Secrets Of The Most Resilient People | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

Some people just seem to bounce back from whatever life throws at them. Whether it’s illness, loss, or tragedy, they do the tough work of picking themselves up, dusting themselves off, and carrying on—even when it seems impossible.

 

If you’ve ever thought, “I could never do that” when looking at one of these apparent “superheroes,” don’t be so sure. It’s actually possible to build resilience to make yourself better able to bounce back from even the most difficult times.

 

“It’s the ability to get back in the game after you’ve had some sort of failure. And indeed, we can learn to become more resilient,” says social scientist and leadership expert Frank Niles, PhD. Niles says there are a number of science-backed areas people can address to help them be more resilient.

 

Here are some ways you can shore up your “resilience bunker” to better prepare for when tough times strike.
